Lisztomania - Phoenix

Lisztomania

Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix
indie french catchy indie pop dance


This song was written in reference to the craze generated by Franz Liszt, a 19th century Hungarian composer known for being ahead of his time. Phoenix singer Thomas Mars told the Washington DC free newspaper Express (Source Lisztomania Songfacts): "We liked the idea that it's just a mash-up, that our songs bring in influences from everywhere. I think that Franz Liszt was one of them; there were other things, visuals. And maybe it was the fact that we grew up in Versailles and we were surrounded by historical things. Maybe they came back that way." In 2010, "Lisztomania" was used in Episode Six of the PBS series, "Circus".


Phoenix is a rock band from Versailles, France, consisting of Thomas Mars (vocals), Deck D'Arcy (bass), Christian Mazzalai (guitar) and Laurent Brancowitz (guitar), who started playing music as kids in a suburb of Versailles during the same cultural period that produced late-'90s bands such as Air,Mellow and Daft Punk. The band's lineup has no permanent drummer or keyboardist. Phoenix formed in 1999 and started off as the backing band for a remix of Air’s “Kelly Watch the Stars” single. Show more ...

Lisztomania - Phoenix

[Verse 1]
So sentimental
Not sentimental no!
Romantic not disgusting yet

Darling I'm down and lonely
When with the fortunate only
I've been looking for something else
Do let do let do let jugulate do let do let do
Let's go slowly, discouraged,
Distant from other interests
On your favorite weekend ending
This love's for gentlemen only
That's with the fortunate only
No I gotta be someone else

These days it comes it comes it comes it comes it comes and goes

[Chorus]
Lisztomania
Think less but see it grow
Like a riot, like a riot, oh
!
Not easily offended
Not hard to let it go
From a mess to the masses

Lisztomania
Think less but see it grow
Like a riot, like a riot, oh!
Not easily offended
Not hard to let it go
From a mess to the masses

[Verse 2]
Follow, misguide, stand still
Disgust, discourage
On this precious weekend ending
This love's for gentlemen only
Wealthiest gentlemen only
And now that you're lonely
Do let do let do let jugulate do let do let do
Let's go slowly, discouraged,
We'll burn the pictures instead
When it's all over we can barely discuss
For one minute only
Not with the fortunate only
Thought it could have been something else
These days it comes it comes it comes it comes it comes and goes

[Chorus]
Lisztomania
Think less but see it grow
Like a riot, like a riot, Oh!
Not easily offended
Not hard to let it go
From a mess to the masses

Lisztomania
Think less but see it grow
Like a riot, like a riot, Oh!
Not easily offended
Not hard to let it go
From a mess to the masses

[Bridge]
It's showtime it's showtime it's showtime
It's showtime it's showtime it's showtime
Time to show off time to show off time to show

[Chorus]
From the mess to the masses
Lisztomania
Think less but see it grow
Like a riot, like a riot, Oh!
This good this good this good this good, Oh!
